These crochet boots with flip flops for soles make great outdoor shoes or house slippers. Made with Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Grey Marble.I went to college at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It’s pretty much everything you might imagine. Incredible views. Hippie kids. Yuppie kids. And kids (a lot of them) who literally wore flip flops all year round. Yes, in the snow. Yes, when it was three degrees. Blame it on the snowboard culture, or the need to rebel, or sheer stupidity.

Well, today I offer a little more practical alternative to the students of CU Boulder and everyone else who loves to wear flip flops. Crochet boots with flip flops as soles! I knew the cozy factor would be high on these when I started designing them, but honestly, wearing them is like a yarn dream come true. They combine the freedom of flip flops with the snuggle of chunky yarn. Winning!

I’m thrilled to be adding these crochet boots with flip flops to the mix because not only do they look like crochet UGG boots you’d buy in a store, they also will work as legit shoes for the winter. Some creative readers came up with the idea to glue the round “plug” from the flip flop straps back into the sole, which ensures that your flip flop sole will function pretty much like any other knit boot sole would.

Whether you wear them outside as boots or inside as slippers, you’re going to have some incredibly warm, stylish and happy toes.

So if you’ve made any of my past flip flop crochet patterns, you know that the distance between the holes you poke in the sole has a big impact on how the gauge of your shoe turns out. That is why I’m really excited to share that the inexpensive, printable PDF of this pattern now contains a “ruler” to guide your hole poking. The ruler helps ensure you have the perfect number of holes to achieve the gauge regardless of what size flip flop you use.

Please find the video tutorial and free written pattern below. Even if you prefer to learn by video, you’ll want to have the written pattern handy because the right and left ankle sections vary slightly. If you prefer crocheting on the go (or on the couch!), you can purchase the ad-free, printable PDF of the pattern here. It’s great for mobile and tablet viewing too.

Supplies:
So you can spend more time making boots and less time shopping, this pattern contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you.
• Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick – 2 skeins (220 yards total) – color: Grey Marble (MC)
• Approx. 10 yards of Vanna’s Choice Yarn or other  worsted weight yarn in color to match flip flops (SC)
• Tapestry needle
• Size B [2.25 mm] crochet hook or size needed to fit through flip flop holes
• Size K [6.5 mm] crochet hook (I really like this affordable set!)
• Size L [8 mm] crochet hook
• 1 pair of flip flops (One size smaller than you wear normally. See pattern notes.)                      
• Sharp tool to poke holes in flip flops (skewer, thin drill bit or tapestry needle)
• ¾ inch (19mm) buttons (6)
• Sewing needle and thread
• Stitch markers
• Sharp scissors
• Strong glue like E6000 (optional)
• Measuring tape or “ruler” from printable pattern
Gauge:

  • 6 holes per 2 inches on flip flop sole
  • Boot Base: 6 sc = 2 inches, 6 rows = 2 inches

Gauge will vary a bit based on distance between poked holes on flip flop sole. Use the “ruler” in printable pattern if you want to ensure gauge.

Abbreviations and Glossary:
sc – single crochet
sk – skip
sl st – slip stich
hdc – half double crochet
scblo – single crochet back loop only
MC – main color
SC – sole color
dc – double crochet
ch – chain
RS – right side
WS – wrong side
Sc2tog (single crochet 2 together)– [Insert hook into next st and pull up a loop] two times, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

Overall Pattern Notes:

  • Transforming flip flops into slippers isn’t an exact science! Unlike other crochet patterns, these slippers have some variables, most significant of which is the size of flip flops used and the number of holes poked. Use the “ruler” that’s available in the printable pattern if you’re struggling with hole spacing.
  • The flip flops pictured are a women’s size 7-8 and they have 64 holes poked on each sole. To make shoes with bigger or smaller flip flops, just adjust the number of holes, poking them slightly further apart than every 1/3 inch.
  • Find inexpensive flip flops on Amazon or at Walmart. Dollar Tree’s $1 flip flops tend to be a bit too flimsy, but can work if you are careful.
  • Pattern explains locations on the flip flop as if it’s a clock where the top of the toe is midnight and the heel is 6:00.

To begin:
Trim straps off flip flops. Save the rubber plugs that connect the straps to the flip flop soles. Print “ruler” on page 8 of the printable pattern and trim, tape pieces together and tape ruler around flip flop sole. With your sharp instrument, poke holes in each dot on the ruler. OR using your measuring tape, poke holes slightly more than 1/3 inch apart. You want the hole to go at an angle from about the middle of the way down the sole to about 1/4 inch into the top of the sole. (Reference Part 1 of the video tutorial for help or see photo toward the top of this post.)

Using smallest hook (B), attach SC yarn at the back of the heel by inserting your hook from the top of the flip flop toward the bottom of the sole, grabbing the yarn and pulling through to the top. Ch 1 through the loop you’ve created to attach the yarn to the flip flop. (See video Part 1 or photos in this boat shoe pattern for help.)
